Lunch Brigade (Tryon Street)

It’s hard to get through the day when you’re experiencing homelessness, and it’s even harder to do so when you are hungry. Join our meal brigade and help provide food for our guests in shelter! This is a great group opportunity for 6-8 individuals!

• Serve-Only
-Serve a meal that our shelter has prepared.

• Bring Food
-Bring food “ready-to-serve” OR bring all the ingredients and supplies to prepare on-site in our kitchen. If you bring a pork dish, please also supply a non-pork option.
-Be prepared to provide for:
 TRYON: 200 guests.
 STATESVILLE: 170 guests.
 The Statesville Avenue Shelter does not have a kitchen. Food for Statesville must be “ready-to-serve.”

• Financially Sponsor
-We are grateful to groups that sponsor a meal at $500.
-Our culinary team can purchase the food and you can help with the menu.

Guidelines for Bag or Box Lunches
• Deliver 175 bag lunches by 11:30am to our North Tryon Street Shelter.
